The gardens of Versailles were planned by André Le Nôtre, perhaps the most famous and influential landscape architect in French history. Behind the palace, the ground falls away on every side from a terrace adorned with ornamental basins, statues, and bronze groups. Directly west of the terrace is the Latona Fountain, designed by Le Nôtre and sculpted by Gaspard and Balthazard Marsy. The fountain depicts the events of Ovid’s Metamorphoses. The Royal Walk extends westward from the palace. A broad avenue centred on the grass of the Green Carpet, it is flanked by rows of large trees and ends at the spectacular Fountain of Apollo.
April in Karlsruhe, Germany was sunny, warm and enjoyable. After the winter cold and long sleep nature woke up and scattered the kaleidoscope of colours. In Zoo animals came out from their cages and celebrated Spring. The only one who missed Winter was the Polar Bear.
First of April was not so funny. In the evening snow came to Toronto and area.
After couple of snowy days we had a real White Winter. It was both beautiful and terrible with all the mess snowfall has done. Despite of that we came back to Winter Wonderland.
The week before Easter was cold and nasty. Gusting wind, snow and freezing rain made the mess everywhere.
There were only Spring dreams in Gallery Park on the Corin Sworn painting. Her work also includes a collection of vases: each week of the exhibition, a flower arrangement is designed in response to the specific period in which the vases were made. The arrangement and vase are subsequently placed in the direct beam of a projector, casting stark shadows on the wall.
Gallery Park is still waiting for the warm sunny weather to bloom all the beautiful flowers. And for now the only joy in the park is the absence of crowd and loneliness.
Spencer’s restaurant is a lovely place in Burlington, Ontario at the waterfront of the lake. Absolutely affordable and tasty food. Friendly personal. Amazing view. In the winter time you can watch the skating rink in front of restaurant. At the summer time it turns to the beautiful pond with the fountain.
It is really nice place for the weekend lunch or dinner with lovely companion.
